Listen Review - Alternative Music Player for GNOME

Dec 24, 2009, 16:03 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Chris7mas for this link. ]

"There is a huge number of audio players for GNOME which thrive to offer as many features as possible, with Banshee, Exaile or Rhythmbox currently being the most popular for this matter. Since features like easy access to lyrics, Wikipedia information or collection management are a must-have for a complex audio player, it looks like Listen makes no exception regarding those either.

"The version I'm going to talk about in this review is the latest, 0.6.3, which was released on July 30, 2009. Listen is written in Python using the GTK toolkit, and it features a simple and organised interface, providing fast access to information related to the currently playing song, like lyrics, Wikipedia artist's page, concerts and Last.fm info."
